Artist No. 38

The 2 1/2 hour workshop is ideally suited to both beginners and experienced artists, I will guide you through the process of this fast and expressive medium with step by step demonstrations, exercises to practice techniques and a finished drawing.

Pastels are a good medium for preliminary studies/sketches to familiarise yourself with a planned picture if you want to establish colour and tone, but they are equally good in their own right – think of DEGAS! My workshop is run with the aim of encouragement and support with an emphasis on working from a choice of still life ( fruit/ flowers) – but if you‘d prefer to work with your own reference material then please do so, the objective is to teach and encourage experimentation in a supportive and relaxed way.  Pastel and paper is included.

Wavecrest is in a coastal location with close proximity to the beach, a large garden to sit in and admire the sea view and a private drive with ample parking.
